Question about Gateway 4028GZ Notebook

2 Answers

Usb trouble I have a problem with my usb ports in my gateway laptop. for some reason they quit working. I have down loaded new chip set drivers from gateway and can get two of the four working. They will work for a week or two then they quit working. so i again reload the chip set drivers and they will work for a while. When i plug anything into them it says the device is not working properly. I have unloaded and loaded the drivers several times but no help. I have even gone as far as formated the hard drive and reloaded the complete recovery cds. still it wont recognize the device no matter if its a mouse or my flash drive. help!!!

Dell inspriation N5010 laptop this laptop all usb port is not working . laptop purchising in 3month and windows 2007 operating system instaled what is problem please sole the problem


If USB devices such as jump drives, digital cameras, or printers are no longer functioning properly when connected to your laptop, the USB ports may have malfunctioned. There are plenty of troubleshooting steps you can complete on your own to get the port up and running properly again.

1.Connect the USB device into a different USB port on the laptop or another computer to make sure the problem isn't with the device instead of the port. Check to see if the device has a "Write-Only" tab. Push that tab into the unlocked position if it still isn't working in a different port.
2.Click "Start" and then "My Computer" if the device works in another computer but not on your laptop. Plug a device into the port and wait to see if the USB port shows up in the list of drives. Click on "Map Network Drive" if the drive does not appear. Choose a drive letter from the drop down menu and then double click the location of the USB device. Click "OK" and try to use the port again.
3.Navigate back to the Start menu and then click "Control Panel." Double click on "Device Manager." Scroll down the list of options and click the "+" located to the left of the entry labeled "Universal Serial Bus Controllers." Double click the name of the USB port that appears in the new menu. Click the "Drivers" tab and then click "Update Drivers." Wait for the driver to finish downloading and attempt to use the port again.
4.Close the drivers tab and right click the name of the USB port. Click on "Properties." Click the "Power Management" tab and then un-check the check box labeled as "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." Choose the "Communications Port" tab and then scroll down to the box labeled "Resources." Click the "Enable Device" button and then click "OK." Attempt to use the USB port again.
5.Close the Properties tab and right click the name of the USB port. Click on "Uninstall." Restart the laptop and then plug a device into the USB port. Wait for a new window to pop up and follow the on-screen instructions to re-install the USB port software.
6.Restart the computer and press the "F1" button on the laptop's keyboard once the manufacturer's name appears on the screen. Scroll down through the list of options that appear and highlight the option labeled as "Advanced." Press "Enter" and then scroll down and press "Enter" on the "USB Support" option. Press "F10" to save the settings and finish loading the operating system.
7.Open your web browser if your laptop is running the Windows XP operating system. Navigate to the Microsoft website and download the Windows XP USB 2.0 driver (see link in Resources). Restart the computer and try to use the USB port again.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

All usb ports on my gateway laptop aren't working... I've reinstalled the drivers several time, still no progress there... checked system BIOS all settings are correct, dont kno what else to do


http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Mobile/8510913.pdf
this shows the user guide But I did not see anything for USB specific trouble shooting.

Other wierd things I have sceen...check ALL USB ports to make sure that they are not broken or have something stuck in them and are shorting out, can cause a MB functions to expire. Try a lighted item in the ports, is the say USB mouse lighting up? If so then this is a software issiue.

Turn off all usb functions and try rebooting then turn off and try them again only turn them on this time. You mentioned that you checked bios setting but did you also check to see if the bios needed upgraded?

The USB ports on my Toshiba A135 S2356 laptop are not working. I tried to use my printer and it says not connected. I bought a new cord but it still doesn't work. What should I do?


1. first check ur USB port using any other USB device, like pen drive, mouse, keyboard,etc.
if system detects that device, then ur USB port is OK!

2. if USB is OK, then the problem is with the 'Printer Driver' not the cord!

3. reinstall the printer driver!

4. update the driver!

5. if USB port is not working, then replace it!

if this helps, tell me.......

My gateway nx560x needs the bios updated and another driver re installed but windows will not load up what can i do?


hello, your model of laptop (NX560X) is able to boot of the usb port, what that means is even if you don't have the laptop working, and don't have a floppy drive, you can use USB flash drive, usb floppy etc to boot up the laptop from.
you should use other PC (perhaps the one you are using to post here :-)) to download bios from gateway website and then use usb device to boot your laptop. Below is the direct link for your laptop and here you will find latest firmware and drivers;
http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn&param=1008644
After you are able to flash the BIOS, test to see if the you can get into windows.
post back your results so we can further troubleshoot the issue.

hope this helps
